So what is considered vintage and what makes vintage Gucci so special? First, it’s important to understand how old is vintage. Fashion is typically considered to be vintage when it’s 20 years old or more. So this means that Gucci designs from the early 2000s and before are now vintage pieces. Vintage Gucci bags, shoes and vintage designer clothes have experienced a wild resurgence in recent seasons and this rising popularity shows no signs of slowing down. The hit movie House of Gucci starring Lady Gaga features many lust worthy Gucci designs from the 1970s and 1980s and is set to boost the interest surrounding vintage Gucci fashion even further.
